Shell-crossing singularities in Szekeres quasispherical models

Subenoy Chakraborty1 and Ujjal Debnath2

Abstract

We investigate the occurrence of shell-crossing singularities in Szekeres quasispherical dust models with or without a cosmological constant. We study the conditions for a shell-crossing singularity from both physical and geometric poinst of view, and they are in agreement.
